Salesforce Org has two companies using it - where one is a wholly owned subsidiary of the other. We now need to enable My Domain for Lightning components to work and have a business request that we have a different domain name for each of the two companies in the same SF org, e.g. company1-my-salesforce.com and childcompany.my.salesforce.com with users distinguished by profile and/or role.

Looking at the documentaion and setup page it appears that a maximum number of 1 domiain is supported for login of internal users on the full Salesforce lenience. Is there any meanse of working around this?

    Looks like you're going to need to choose between a common domain and an org split. – Adrian Larson Mar 1 '17 at 16:37
  • @AdrianLarson I suspect it would need to come down to that, I wonder if just using separate branding once the users are logged in might resolve it. – Dave Humm Mar 1 '17 at 16:39

I believe your only option if you want to support multiple domains is an org split. It doesn't seem like a feature they can easily relax the limit on. You can use Salesforce2Salesforce if you need to sync data between the orgs.

An org split might be a bit heavy-handed, depending on your end goal. It's still unclear what you're actually trying to accomplish. You might consider using Profiles specific to each company, and then changing layouts, etc. based on them.

  • This seems like the way to go. Then you can do custom App Assignments to each profile with their own branding and look and feel. – Jeff Bennett Mar 1 '17 at 19:26
